Down Memory Lane

Down Memory Lane short poem

Down memory lane
I traveled,
at the first
corner
of endless street
I met
almond eyes
dimpled cheeks
silk soft tresses
My First Poem
–She!!

further down
at the second
corner
nostalgic charm
lyrical beauty
simple smile
My Second Poem
had me ENSLAVED!!

at the third
corner
a bud
bloomed into
a flower
spreading
fragrant love
My Third Poem
— a bud, a flower!!!

I turned the corner
ventured into the
sing song street
loving memories
of the first words,
the first smile
…the fourth poem
–The First Touch!

reveries of times spend
together
dreams weaved together
holding hands
in dark movie halls
…of cold coke
sipped from one bottle
of silent, sweet
seconds spent
watching the sunset!!

reminiscence of
the walk
in the rain
huddled
under an umbrella
wet, cold
feeling
warmth
in each other’s clasp!!

…an embrace
in the sober
brightness
of a dance floor
music, steps,
the first clumsy
stepping
on her toes!!!

the excitement
of the first kiss
stolen
in the library
sandwiched
between tall cupboards
of Shakespeare and
Kalidasa!!!

down memory lane
my present poem!!!

Awesome beauty of a poem, as beautiful as the image, reading this poem the reader is taken back down memory lane and relives along with the poet those wonderful moments of youthful days, those memories which can never be erased from our heart, those moments which happened long time back yet as fresh as it happened few days back, wonderful poem and as i said before Viswas has an unique style of his own …..keep it up,

Up And Down

Up And Down short poem

Up and down we go, Up and down we flow. Like cars on the main road, Racing through cross road. One is getting rich, another is becoming poor. Mr A is elected in, Mr B is elected out. Someone is
